About Escape

Securing 100% of your APIs shouldn’t be this hard

We help your business stay secure with automated API discovery and security testing.
Our mission

Helping organizations build secure applications.

We firmly believe it’s time to bring more AI-driven innovation to cybersecurity. 

With this conviction, Escape was born in 2020, when one of our co-founders fell victim to a hacker and realized that exposed APIs put many organizations at high risk.

Fast forward a few years, Escape's AI emulates the behavior of a hacker. It interacts with APIs and applications, learning the underlying business processes to detect vulnerabilities  before hackers can exploit them.

Today, Escape has evolved beyond, allowing you to quickly inventory all your APIs, detect OWASP Top 10 and complex logic flaws at scale, and empower your developers to adopt security in CI/CD.

This is the moment you can trust we’ve got your applications covered.
